Mundane things

Well, I thought it would be good to put a post that was a bit more mundane. Today, I woke up with a slight sore throat and thought I would not go in to the school but do some house stuff. The day started well with some water and power. However, the water supply was very short lived. We are fortunate to have a tank - though care is needed because half a tank went in one day! It is for the whole village by the way. We only used about 1.5 litres to 'bathe' each.
Anyway, back to the story, we had power and so I thought I will make some more bread. I don't think we have reported that we have been able to quite successfully make some bread by hand. So, then I thought if I am making bread then I should use the oven for more than just that. Hence, I cooked a chocolate cake. Three little helpers for the morning and then they got the chance to lick the bowl!
A lady from YWAM, Judith, who is becoming a friend dropped in with some work she does the accounting for the village. What timing, just pulled the chocolate cake out - it smelt fantastic! So, not only did we have chocolate cake, much to Ron's delight but we had a guest to share it with. So, here are a couple of pictures: one is Shamina enjoying the bowl and the other is Ron and Judith. By the way, Judith is the lady who organises Women of Hope that I have talked about and makes sure the English class that I got to help out with yesterday happens. She is a great lady, one who is easy to talk to. We were going to have supper (dinner) there Saturday but she and family have been given an opportunity to have a holiday so it has been postponed. Good opportunity to lend her a good book to read.


  1. Another great post Anne.I love the Photos too. What a home you are making there,it looks wonderful and homely.

  2. Hope your sore throat feels better soon! Chocolate cake can cure a lot of things.

  3. Wow may be time to come back for a visit - no wonder Ron looks so healthy with chocolate cake rather than posho! The living room is looking great - we are praying for both of you - say "hi" to Judith from us.. blessings Johann & Kathy

  4. OK this is sounding positively luxurious! I can';t wait to get there in July. Chocolate cake makes a fine replacement for the 'regular fare' there!
    Ron, you look pretty relaxed. Thankful that you are both settling in well and praying that you will both stay healthy and happy!
